14th of July, 2020. Region 9, Guyana, South America.

Today, 14th of July, 2020, the residents of the Rupununi bid Miss Donna Ambrose Greaves a teary-eyed final goodbye as she was laid to rest in the St. Ignatius Burial Ground in Region 9, Guyana, South America.

The former teacher, who was just 25 years old, is Lethem’s first coronavirus victim. However, her family insists that there is overwhelming evidence that she was not infected in Region 9, but at the Georgetown Hospital. When the GPHC refuted the claim, the family was disappointed, saying that they are not blaming any particular staff of the Georgetown Hospital but a system that needs to be improved.

The husband of Donna Graves responded to a Chronicle News article which sought to rebuff claims that Donna was infected in Georgetown. The article was entitled, “Not our Watch.” Mr. Franklin Greaves responded via a Facebok Post, “You can’t solve a problem if you don’t admit there’s a problem!!!”

Mr. Greaves, posted on his Facebook Page, today:

😭😭”A house is not a home when ur love one is gone”😭😭 — feeling alone.

A close friend of Miss Donna, Ms. Tishana McDonald, made the following post on Rupununi News Facebook Group yesterday, 13th of July, 2020:

Tishana and Donna in Happier Times

Good Evening Everyone,

Mrs Donna Ambrose would be buried tomorrow 14th July 2020 among close family members at midday in her home town at the St.Ignatius Burial Ground.

It would not be normal Service/Funeral where people would want to attend due to the pandemic situation so we are asking whether you in Lethem, Culvert City, Tabatinga, St.Ignatius Village or any part of the Rupununi, on behalf of the family of Mrs Nanda Donna Greaves, we are asking your child or any person to show a little solidarity for her by releasing a white balloon into the air for her at 12:00 hrs Tuesday.

Mrs Greaves would have touched our hearts and many lives in some way, especially the kids she taught or who attended the school she at which she taught. The family thanks everyone for reaching out with condolences, cards, phone calls and whatever way you supported.

The guidelines of the Ministry of Public Health regarding the COVID-19 pandemic will be enforced. Face masks are mandatory and social distancing for family members attending.

May her soul Rest in Peace and Rise in Glory. #RUPUNUNI HAS LOST GREAT SOUL #ARAPAIMA NURSERY HAS LOST A GREAT TEACHER. Thank you all.
